Discover the Path to Spiritual Fulfillment

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a profound and sacred process through which adults are initiated into the Catholic Church. At United City Church, we offer a comprehensive RCIA program that serves as a pathway for individuals to deepen their understanding of Catholic teachings, sacraments, and traditions.

Understanding the RCIA Process

The RCIA process is structured in a way that allows individuals to proceed at their own pace, fostering a genuine and personal connection with their faith. This program is not solely focused on knowledge acquisition, but rather a holistic approach that nourishes the mind, heart, and soul.

Our RCIA program consists of several distinct stages, each marked by transformative rituals and liturgies:

  1. Inquiry: The initial stage where individuals explore their interest in Catholicism, engaging in discussions and asking questions.
  2. Catechumenate: A period of deep learning and formation, where participants study the Catholic faith and develop a stronger relationship with God.
  3. Purification and Enlightenment: A time of reflection and introspection, focused on preparing individuals for the sacraments of initiation.
  4. Mystagogia: The final stage where recent initiates are integrated into the Catholic community, continuing their growth through ongoing support and guidance.

A Welcoming and Inclusive Community

At United City Church, we believe in the value of an inclusive and welcoming community. Our RCIA program is open to individuals from all walks of life, regardless of their background or previous religious affiliations.
